They come on LONG after the "turn off your farking cell phones or GTFO" message plays repeatedly.

Previews are crap.  I paid to see a movie.  Instead after paying I have to watch their swill.  Its like they get paid twice.  Once when I pay and then I have to watch commercials.   movie previews are usually the best parts from a goats ass and that ain't much.

TOSViolation: Dougie AXP: TOSViolation: LesserEvil: AirForceVet: Looks like the victim tossed a popcorn bag at the old man who then shot the victim.

If defending yourself with a gun against somebody throwing popcorn is self defense, that means any little kid in movie theaters is a valid target.

/This ex-cop is no Zimmerman.

The old guy overreacted and took a man's life over getting pissed off and saying something about the victim using his cell phone before the movie started.

No winners here, but it probably shouldn't have cost the idiot cell phone user his life. Basically a road rage incident, translated into the theater. Two morons escalating their anger over something simple stupid small.

My take-away is the old guy saying "I'm 71 years old..." - he was basically admitting that he didn't care enough to be concerned that he was going to potentially take a life when he drew his gun.

The guy will never be a texting asshole in a theater again, so there's that.

What this society lacks is a whole lot of, "Oops!  You're right.  I farked up.  Sorry."

The asshole probably DID deserve to be shot, based on the video.  If you look closely, he lunged over the seat, grabbed the guy's popcorn, threw it at him, all while probably yelling at the guy.  The popcorn throw was probably followed by him raring back to do more, had the old guy not shot him.

We'll never know, but the entire incident could have been avoided if the asshole had just had a little bit of respect for other people around him and just apologized.  "I'm sorry.  I was just letting the babysitter know the movie was starting.  Phone is off and headed into my pocket."

Or you know because it was the previews and not the actual movie the old man could just nutted up and ignored it.

Newsflash; that message to turn off cell phones ISN'T A GOD DAMN LAW. NOT KILLING PEOPLE IS.

Obviously the manager of the theater told the old coot "its the farking previews, there 25 farking minutes of them, it's not a big deal"

as for your other statements, yes you could do all of that and you would make a nice chunk of change. Ever been to the theaters that are adult only and offer beer and food? they make bank because people are willing to pay for separation.

ALL of that being said, none of what happened in that theater warrants killing someone. After popcorn throw, old fart should have gone back to the manager, insisted texting dick be thrown out for "assaulting" him and there ya go, tension averted.

OR HEY, that off duty sheriff who was sitting a few rows back could have intervened the first time and told them to calm down

Parthenogenetic: DubyaHater: Can't wait until this guy is found innocent

Yes, so I can bathe in the bitter tears of all you criminal lovers/cop haters.

The punk shouldn't have messed with a retired cop.  Once a cop, always a cop.  The combat reflexes just kicked in.

You're not allowed to use your phone in the movie theater. Period. He doesn't get an exemption because he was texting his precious snowflake.

I'll bet the defense will find some stuff on that phone that proves the deceased criminal wasn't the innocent angel the lie-beral media is making him out to be.

Old people.


Went to see Monuments men today at the matinee.   Not only was the whole theater filled up 30 mins before the movie started it was entirely comprised of old farts.  Multiple old farts complaining about the lack of heat in a room that was easily 65 degrees, going to tell ushers.  My GOD did they talk during the whole movie.  Half the time they couldn't hear what was said and needed someone to repeat it, sometimes multiple times.  Sometimes they just asked what the name of the actors on screen were.

And then someone opened a can of tuna after the first act.

Actually, what we need is parents actually giving discipline to their kids and teaching them to respect others.  I didn't hear the story about the kids in the SUV, but presumably they won't be doing that anymore.

What we need is for idiot kids to have a FEAR of being assholes.  Right now, they think they're kids so there are no real consequences.  That's pretty LOLtastic to suggest talking to them.  Their most likely response would be to throw a soda in the guy's face.  These are the same types of assholes who think it's funny to go down the road destroying mailboxes.

jayessell: Why Has no one said "early onset alsheimers"?


If Alzheimer's is used to exonerate him, it naturally leads to the question of "should we ensure that people who have CCL licenses don't have major cognitive defects?" Because if there's a class of people walking around with guns who aren't responsible for their actions, keeping those people from having weapons is a legitimate function of government. And that means more hurdles to jump through to get to carry around your gun. So I'd expect there are a lot of people who are eager for that not to be talked about.

Maybe his counsel will use a variant of the defense that murderer kid in Texas used -- because he had always been able to boss people around, he never learned to not boss people around.

I'm certain that you would agree that if someone was speaking on their cellphone and another patron told the theatre, thereby getting the cellphone user kicked out, that it is perfectly understandable and reasonable.

So I do hope you're saying that "he didn't deserve death for using a cellphone" as opposed to "Fark you, asshole.  I'll do what I want when I want where I want and you'll shut the hell up about it".

Seems pretty obvious the shooter had ample opportunity to de-escalate but deliberately sat down to provoke a confrontation that would give him the excuse he wanted to kill the guy.

2014-02-07 11:44:47 PM  
I don't know what video you guys saw, but that video I saw shows a much younger man ASSAULTING an old man.


While I agree that probably shooting someone isn't the best course of action, if you research a little something called disparity of force, and if you look at the laws as well as do some research on things like 1 punch kills, you will come up with some interesting things.


1.)  In order to legally deploy lethal force in self defense, NO INJURY is needed.
2.)  Assaulting old men can get you dead
3.) Differences in age, or sex, or strength can be justifications for employing lethal force.  Disparity of force.
4.) Old and perhaps feeble people are at very big disadvantage to young and healthy people.  A single punch could kill some seniors.  They don't have to wait until they are punched.
5.) The 3 prongs of a justifiable self defense are:  A.) Did the person have the means (weapon, training, disparity of force, etc)  Yes, we have a much younger and probably larger man against an old and perhaps feeble man with possibly health problems   B.) Did they have intent to cause great harm.  Was the guy who got shot threatening the old man.  Did he say he was going to f**k him up or anything?  Did he assault him?  Yes, he clearly assaulted the old man.    C.) Immediacy.  Was the attack going to happen immediately?  Yes, it did.  The old man was most definitely assaulted by the younger man.  Throwing the cell phone, taking the swing, and then throwing the pop corn absolutely constitute assault.


So whether you agree with the outcome or not, we can see that the younger man indeed assaulted the older man.  He was most likely much more healthy and strong.  He was immediately attacking the man.  (regardless of what you think the severity of the throwing things was, it was most definitely an attack, and the old man at that point had no idea what was going to happen after... ie, was the attack going to continue)  The old man absolutely has no obligation to become injured or even let his opponent hit him.  (he already had hit him by throwing things at him and moving towards him in a threatening and aggresive manner.... 


From a legal stand point, this case is likely to go down to the wire.  It's going to hinge on what the witnesses say transpired before the man attacked the old man.  What was the younger man saying.  How aggressive was he?   Was he cursing?   What was the old man saying?   I think the defense has a good chance of getting the old man out of this.


I'm not saying I think the guy should have been shot...  but I think there are enough factors to show that the old man was reasonably in fear that this younger guy was going to kick his ass.  That's all it takes.  You don't get to go around billy bad assing other people and throwing things in their face and intimidating them.   They don't have to wait until you have pummeled them to the ground to take defensive action.  That's just the way the law is.  Sorry.

Yes, I'm saying the first part, didn't deserve to die.

And as I said, the old man handled it correctly. He asked the man to put it away, the man gave him a reply. The man didn't like it, took it up with management. Management felt it wasn't a strong enough violation of the private establishments rules (as you pointed out) to warrant intervention. This made the old man angry, old man then confronts the father one more time, this sets off father, old man shoots father.

Texting, in my opinion, at least during the god damn previews of which there are now an average of 15-20 minutes, isn't as much of an annoyance in a movie as talking on a phone. Talking on a phone forces everyone to LISTEN to you. Texting, especially during the previews, adds maybe a little more light to the stimulus already present in the theater.

MFAWG: What part of 'Shall not be infringed' do you not understand, Obamabot?


What part of "well-regulated militia" don't you understand. The founding fathers did not envision Cletus with an M16.

Yeah, just a cannon with explosive shells and the like.

Also, he was obviously being sarcastic.

That is one way of putting it. Another way would be: Most cops are complete idiots.

jayessell: Why Has no one said "early onset alsheimers"?
Obviously some sort of cognitive dysfunction.
That, and a guy used to bossing people around, but who now can't.


Because it is a slippery slope.
(btw he is past 70, that isn't really "early onset")

If dimentia comes into play in court, then that means there are grounds to "take mah guns!" - an intolerable thought among a lot of americans.  taking their license to drive is another - and, even then, they can get around the driving issue for years. try getting the D/L of a loved one yanked..try disarming a 2nd amendment centric armed american adult with declining cognition

this is another "no win" &*^%*$ing gun case in a stand-your-ground state

but, hey? "f there had been another mass shooting in a movie theatre, this former cop might have just saved the day".......i really hope to not read anything NEAR that sentiment in this thread!

Carrying a gun turns you into God.
Execute whomever displeases you, and trust that your lawyer can put a 'tard on the jury to set you free.
God bless America.
